Cheryl Tiegs and Arsenio Hall, two cast members from the upcoming fifth season of NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice,” hit the set of Access Hollywood Live on Wednesday, offering hosts Billy Bush and Kit Hoover heir take on some of their competitors.

On “American Idol” Season 2 runner-up, Clay Aiken:

Cheryl: “Clay Aiken made me laugh.”

Arsenio: “The sweetest guy, a good friend too… He’s charming, he’s bright and he’s one of my best friends… Something about me and Clay bonded.”

On “Real Housewives of New Jersey” table-flipper Teresa Guidice:

Cheryl: “Out of all of them, I liked her most – of the women.”

On actress/model Patricia Velasquez:

Cheryl: “I think Patricia didn’t like me for whatever reason.”

On “Star Trek” legend George Takei:

Arsenio: “He’s the greatest guy to work with. There are times when everything goes to hell and he says (puts on George voice), ‘Ohhhhh, my!’”

As for their own thoughts on the competition itself, Arsenio hinted he won’t be making it to the final board room.

“Are you crazy? They almost didn’t want me there, much less, let me win,” he laughed.

And Cheryl said thinking back on the competition gives her a little fear.

“To be honest with you, just talking about it and thinking back on all the things that happened makes my palms sweat to this day. It’s scary,” she said.

As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, also part of the cast are singer Debbie Gibson, original “The Incredible Hulk” star Lou Ferrigno, former Miss Universe Dayana Mendoza, comedian Lisa Lampanelli, “American Chopper’s” Paul Teutul Sr., singer/actress Aubrey O’Day, magician Penn Jillette, radio host Adam Carolla and IndyCar champ Michael Andretti.

“Celebrity Apprentice” returns on February 12 at 8 PM EST/PST on NBC.
